My self-summary
Open-minded, easygoing, feminist, hippie, committed to friends and family, honest, loyal, nonjudgemental, hardworking, bad at online communication.

I'm ultimately interested in finding something long-term, but I can thoroughly enjoy and appreciate a wide range of kinds of relationships, and I've found meeting people most enjoyable when there aren't expectations up front.
What I’m doing with my life
Working (I'm a software engineer), hanging out with friends pretty much whenever I'm not working. My friends are by far the most important part of my life.

I love activities! Skiing, snowboarding, rock climbing, scuba diving, sky diving, going to the beach, going to see a play, etc. Always open to trying something new.
That said, I also have a huge appreciation for a night in watching netflix or playing board games.

I love meeting new people and going on spontaneous adventures.
I’m really good at
Flailing. Being a muppet. Climbing onto roofs. Shenanigans.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love movies that make you think or have a twist at the end.

I'm also into theater and love going to shows, though I don't do it nearly as often as I'd like to. If you can recommend some good shows for me to see, let me know!

You should message me if
You are enthusiastic, energetic, and love life. You're an optimist who prefers to see the best in people. You take things as they come and are always open to a new experience.

You're confident but not cocky, and don't take yourself too seriously.

You're an artist who likes scientists.

You want to go see a show with me.

There are people in the world who when confronted with a fact or opinion that contradicts what they believe look for ways to invalidate or discredit the new information so they can hold onto their existing beliefs. Then there are people who actively look for information that contradicts their existing knowledge and beliefs so that they are always being challenged and growing and expanding their worldview. You are the latter kind of person.

You're okay with keeping things casual, at least for a while, and not rushing into anything too serious, while also staying open to the idea of it getting serious eventually if things move naturally in that direction.

You want to help me finally catch moose and squirrel.
